Support group

"I hired Lori in September 2010 to be my speech pathologist because I stutter and stammer. Throughout the 9-10 months that I worked with her, she was absolutely amazing. She's given me the confidence, speech tools, and strength to be who I am today. I can speak in front of crowds, and classes with no problems at all. Lori is a great speech pathologist and a great friend."

Lori Melnitsky, M.A., CCC-SLP

I have proudly helped hundreds of children, teens, and adults to stutter less and communicate with confidence. I personally stuttered severely until my early 20’s, struggling to participate in class, call friends on the phone, and say my own name. But here’s what I really want you to know: Stuttering did not stop me, and it won’t stop you either.

ASHA Certified Speech-Language Pathologist

"It comforted me that she also stuttered, because then it means that she really understands the problem. And that's why I feel so comfortable with her."
